    Just picked her up last week, I am now up to 5 trucks along with 2 subs. Haven't plowed with her yet but I cannot wait to test her out.

    Haha thanks guys but I buy my trucks to work, it sure is nice having heated everything inside this one though.:D I am going to level it out like the rest of my trucks soon to help with weight on the front end.

    I'd be paranoid to plow with that. Sweet truck!

    Great looking setup. I tried to buy a 2010 CTD before I bought my Ford, Dodge just couldn't come close to the Ford discounts at the time, but the new Dodges are super nice and the heated steering wheel is awesome. Good luck with it this winter and post some action shots when you get to try it out.

    It really pisses me off to see you have a laramie with a single tone paint job. I ordered my 2010 Ram 3500 Laramie SRW in April and they said I had to have the lower half of the truck painted tan. I wrote a letter to dodge corporate and the factory asking them to paint the whole thing black instead of black and tan and they said there was no way to do that (which is total BS). So now I see that they are doing it for 2011. ... grrr

    Word of warning. Those aluminum wheels are really fragile. I have the cummins also and a sno-way mega blade on mine (which probably weighs less than your western) and between the weight of the engine and the plow I hit a small pothole and it cracked the wheel and tire went flat. I would look into getting some steel wheels for winter, or at least be really careful.

    Otherwise god I love the truck and I am sure you will too. the heated steering wheel kicks ass in plowing season haha

    Thanks for the word of warning, I didn't order my truck personally but I brought it while it was still being assembled in the plant. I just got real lucky when I told my dealer what I wanted and he was able to track it down and get it in only a few weeks.

    Nice looking truck... and plow!

    No DEF (diesel exhaust fluid) system on the 2011 Dodge?

    I believe that they don't use/need that system. However, the 4500 and 5500 cab chassis require it. Maybe I'm wrong though.

    I will never buy a truck that requires that stuff. It's expensive enough already to run a diesel.

    Nope no DEF, but I can't wait for some tuners to be released for this engine so I can get rid of all this "go green" restrictions and put an exhaust to get a little more power and some MPG out of it.

    Awesome truck bud! I have been considering an '11 for some time now and would install the same blade on mine. What part of Jersey are you from?
